    Stopped by on my way home from work this morning.  No migrants of any kind, but it was nice to find a BANK SWALLOW colony developing on the sand bank to the Right of the pathway leading into the preserve  (actually part of the Plainville Municipal complex). at least 12 holes excavated but only saw 6 birds in flight at the same time.  Tried taking some pictures but they wouldn't stay still.  One decent one in the ebird report below.
